0 appears very late in pi,32 places after the decimal point. It is late compared to e,where every digit appears by the 20th decimal place. Also,in many other constants the late digit is not late. Ln(2) takes 22 places,Euler's gamma takes 16,and sqrt(2) takes 18. However,there are some constants with later digits. Pi^2 takes 46 decimal places to get 2. This is so cool about late digits.

Hi,I am Tim Axoy! I love pi! Here is how much I know pi to:3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679.... That is 100 digits.
I like the number 7. How come there is a great deficiency of 7's in the first few hundred digits? For example,in the first 100 digits,there are only 8 7's,in the first 200 digits,there are only 12,in the first 300 digits,there are only 19,and in the first 400 digits,there are only 24. That is weird.
Guess what? The first time that you find four of the same digit in a row in pi is 9999,which starts 762 places after the decimal point. Well,there is also a fifth 9 and a sixth 9,too. Therefore,it goes 999999. Another thing about pi is that from 19437 places after the decimal point to 19453 places after the decimal point,an interesting thing happens. It goes 99992128599999399. There are big clumps of 9's.
Another number I like is the prime number 2477. Well,it turns out that the first time that you find 2477 in pi is starting 4905 places after the decimal point. Well,it turns out that there are three 2's immediately before that,not including the 2 in 2477,so starting 4902 places after the decimal point,it goes 2222477.
There are six 9's in a row in pi. Bye,bye!
